The new head of the press service of the White house, Anthony’s Scaramucci said that was wrong in stating the position of President of the United States Donald trump on the question of new anti-Russian sanctions. It is reported by The New York Times (NYT).
Scaramucci, speaking in a television programme, said that trump has not decided whether to sign a new law on restrictions against Russia.
In this July 23, the press-Secretary of the administration of U.S. President Sarah Sanders argued that Washington endorses the bill to the new restrictions. “We weren’t happy with the previous version of the bill, but we have made the necessary amendments”, — she answered to the question whether the sign trump the bill.
NYT journalists appealed to Scaramucci asking which of the two statements true. “My mistake. Follow what says Sarah [Sanders], for me this is new information,” — said in a written reply, the new head of the press service.
